Mail Call for 3/14

March 17, 2003

"I never thought I would see the day the Family and Consumer Sciences program (formerly Home Economics) would be removed from a school's offerings. Nevertheless, the principal has elected to take such action at Boonsboro High School. Instead, he is hiring a fourth Spanish teacher. I'm sorry, but another Spanish class will not improve the quality of life for students. Knowledge of nutrition, meal preparation and child care will! If the FCS program at Boonsboro High has had an impact on your life, I urge you to contact the principal and let him know!"

"Anyone from the Class of 1988 from North Hagerstown High School who knows the whereabouts of fellow classmates, call Dawn Mills at 240-420-0481 or e-mail if you have computer access to"

"I see the city wants to raise taxes again. Every time something happens, raise the taxes, raise the taxes, that is all you hear. You aren't managing your money right, that is what the problem is. You give money here and there, everywhere. Stop doing it. It's not your money to give, it's the taxpayers' money. Put the money where it belongs. Don't just give it away."


"I enjoy the bold numbering that has been done recently in the classified section, it makes it much easier to read and is much more attractive. Good job, Herald-Mail."

"I have been driving for 43 years and I recently noticed that aggressive drivers are people who tailgate, people who speed, 8 out of 10 of them are women."

"To the person who left the sweats on my front porch, they are too small. You didn't leave any price tags on them, so I have no clue where you got them. Please call Mail Call and let me know what you want me to do with them."

"To the person inquiring about the North Hagerstown High School's class of 1966 reunion. Please call 301-824-7072."

"I was very glad to see that some of the nonprofit organizations may not be receiving funding from our county government. I think that they should cut back on some of these agencies."

"I want to know why they don't make the people on George Street, the city, clean up the backyards? It is disgraceful."

"Talk about cutting apron strings. I know a 60 year old woman that takes care of her 35 year old son as if he were a 3 year old. She should give her son a wedding blessing and tell him 'welcome to the real world.' She needs to ask herself if he would take care of her one day if needed, like she has taken care of him all these years."

"I have a dead cat in my backyard. I called the SPCA about it and they said that they don't take care of it. I am not going to go near it and I am not picking it up. What should I do? My number is 301-745-5617, can someone who to call to remove this dead cat."

"Here we go again, the sheriff's department and everyone else wants an increase in their budget. Why can't they just stick to their own budgets and put a freeze on them."

"Someone wanted to know when the next reunion for North High Class of 1966, all you have to figure is every five years. The last one would have been 2001, so the next one would be 2006."
